Happy birthday to @gracehelbig who I’ve shared a very normal and not at all weird friendship with.

Welp. Turns out I have to cut my Asheville sabbatical short and head to LA for work. And just when the air got that all autumn’y 🍂 😭 Currently scheming how to stay here a few months every year. Here’s some stuff I’ll miss: MY FRIENDs, the lil honor system farm stand, spending time with family especially kicking my nephew’s ass at cornhole, the pups at @foreverdreamsds (stay tuned for future fundraiser), all that delicious beer and being on and near rivers, morning nature walks with coffee.... and while this last one is a highly respectable gas station boiled peanut station, I’m looking forward to a crockpot of Chip’s. 🥜
Back on my foraging bullshit 🌿Things I learned yesterday: 🍄 How to identity mushrooms you will want to eat and not die from. Sadly, none to bring to parties. 🍄 This mushroom that puffs smoke (spores) is called a lycoperdon.. which is Greek for WOLF FART 🍄 Tom Selleck has a magazine?!
A dreamy day of drinks. First, realized I was fifteen minutes away from the @fontaflorabrew brewery that’s in the middle of nowhere so I had to go. This is a saison with locally foraged dandelions. 🌼 Then went to my cousins place where I tried all their home brews they make from scratch. This one is a elderflower and orange brew with a lil elderberry (that they grew) syrup with clove and ginger. Pinch me (not too hard). My booze nerd is showing.
